This duty entered into force on November 21, 2013 and is applicable for a period of five years.

On 21 November 2018, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) from Chinese Taipei and Japan.

On 20 November 2019, the Ministery of Commerce of the People's Republic of China terminated the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Chinese Taipei and Japan.
